so, I am thinking this car no longer really qualifies for the grocery getter daily driver section.   sctatcherhead

Yes, we follow the rules around here to a tee.  All threads are posted in the correct sub forum or else :D :D :D

Pretty impressive results.  Glad you are pleased.

Don't let a little thing like burning rubber from the end of your driveway to the grocery store, then doing the same on the return trip stop you from calling it yer lil grocery getter. It still gets you to the store and back right? Even if it does so under a dense cloud of burned rubber!  drivex
You boys better hold on cause i'm gonna have to stand on it!

NEED A 1/2" BONNEY STREAMLINE COMBINATION AND ANY OVER 13/16" TOO!

ah so true.  I did take it to the store yesterday, and drove it to work today.  so maybe it does still qualify.  although I am finding I have to fill the tank more often than I used to.

thanks.  it is a fun little car that gets a lot of looks going down the road.  it is no show car.  but that is partly why it is fun.  I can have fun with it and not worry if it gets a rock chip or something

^^^^^^^And that is why I would never want a near perfect car.  I don't want to sweat a nick or chip.
